In Hindi, Aranya means “forest” and Niran means “infinite”.  We are focused on giving back to nature, recognizing that it will take a 100 years for a East Indian Rosewood tree to mature. We also believe in building a model for lasting, community-driven empowerment fostering dignity and self-confidence, encouraging deprived women to reclaim their worth.
